What happens if it rains?
Overcast days do not always spell disaster for a photo shoot. In fact, an overcast sky can often produce even more flattering lighting than a clear blue day. However, if it is raining heavily we may have to reschedule your shoot. I will get in touch the day prior to your shoot to confirm and discuss any weather considerations.
Where are the shoot locations?
Your photography session location should be somewhere meaningful to you. This can be in the comfort of the family home, or at your favourite beach or reserve. If you are unsure of where to have your photo session, I am always happy to suggest any number of my favourite locations that will make a stunning backdrop for your images.
What is the best time for a maternity session?
Maternity photography sessions can be scheduled at any stage of your pregnancy, but I recommend between 34-37 weeks. At this stage you will have a nice big bump but it's not too close to your due date.
What is the best time for a newborn session?
It really comes down to what stage of their new little lives are you wanting to capture. If you are wanting to document how tiny and new they are, then the ideal age for them is anywhere between 1-4 weeks of age. If you wish to record more awake expressive shots, then I find from around 6 weeks onwards is ideal for that result.
Once you have picked your date and location I will send you an invoice. To secure your date, a non refundable deposit of $100 is required. Until a deposit is paid, the date remains free for any other enquires. Full payment will be due 2 weeks before your photo shoot.
How do I book and pay for my shoot?
What if I need to cancel?
If you need to cancel or reschedule your photo session thats OK. I will require one week notice. Less than one week notice will result in a cancellation fee of 50%.
What should I wear?
That is totally up to you! My advice is to wear something that you feel comfortable in.
You are welcome to bring a change of outfit so that you have two different looks in your photo session. Please note though, that usually outfit changes will happen outdoors, and will need to happen quickly so we don't waste the golden hour light!
You don't need to wear a lot of make up. You are already beautiful, so lets rock the natural look! If you would like to wear make up, a little bit of make up around the eyes comes up well on camera.
After the shoot there is a little more work to be done behind the scenes. I try and get this done as quickly as possible for you. It usually takes around two weeks.
Once your photos are ready I will send you a link and password for your own private viewing gallery where you can view and download your images.
When & how will I get my pictures?
Absolutely! Once you receive your photos they are yours to do with as you wish.
I would love it if you share them with your friends and family and, if you loved your shoot please do recommend me!
Can I share my pictures online?
Absolutely! Approximately 2 weeks after you photo shoot you will receive an album. You can select images from this album which you would like printed and framed and we will arrange all this for you. Email us for a full list of printing and framing costs.
